Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

27. This is BS, the definition of a frivolous lawsuit,

and I am (1) someone who doesn't make that accusation lightly; and (2) a plaintiffs' attorney.

The standards for infliction of emotional distress are quite high and usually involve things like lying, libel, slander and the like. If I were a judge I would bounce this claim, should it be filed, on Rule 12 grounds - failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted, and then sanction the hell out of any lawyer dumb enough to bring such a claim. Wal-Mart isn't responsible for the conduct of the public unless it involves something vastly more egregious than this. "Psychological disorders" my ass.
